1 Sep

michael and James essienessien tweetA few hours ago, Michael Essien confirmed the death of his father James shortly after touching down in Ghana. He was traveling there to join the national team for their World Cup qualifier against Zambia on Friday. Our thoughts are with him at what must be a very difficult time.

tumblr_mqug5o9yZs1qbpdiyo1_500Lordy, I have so many bits & bobs, I don’t even have a clue where to start. Ugh. How’s about I just begin with our boys? Here’s Iker (or rather Geeker from the looks of it) with a fan. Our intrepid capi also posted a  shot of his good friend Roy Batty from Blade Runner who was enjoying some LA poolside tanning.  Continue reading

da42000aebf911e283d722000a1f99fc_7Well now that its heading for 1 AM and I’m in an absolutely foul mood, I’m going to make this a quick post since I have to be up for work in a few hours. This post deals with non-Real players. David Luiz and his goofiness always seem to cheer me up. He’s adorable.  Continue reading

Nacho (1)How does this always happen? I get home from work late, eat dinner and then sit down to post – poof! – it’s close to 11 PM. I give up. Here’s a quick rundown.

First, congrats to Nacho who yesterday extended his contract with Real Madrid for an additional 4 years. Continue reading

That awkward moment when you meet the guy you named your dog after.

An eagle-eyed cule (Photo by @barzaboy) spotted Messi & Cesc chatting with Isco in Ibiza and thankfully, snapped a picture. Ha!  I can see it now: Continue reading

A Quick Bitsy Bobsy Post

13 Jun

tumblr_mo90qtbQEf1qa3jw0o1_500Oh people, what a day I had! I was an hour late for work due to some sort of subway police drama and my 20 minute one train commute turned into about 90 minutes and FOUR trains. UGH. Then I spent the morning on conference calls followed by an epic 5 hour straight meeting. To say my brain is fried doesn’t cover it. So I thought I’d post a few quick pictures of some of our faves. Who better to start with than Marcelo? Continue reading

The End….for now

I’ve changed my mind. I take it back. I don’t want this season to be over & done, I’m just not ready. I thought I had made my peace with the fact that Mou would no longer be with us next season, along with a number of our players, but…..come the final match, all my acceptance went right out the window. Seeing Mou in the tunnel, seeing the boys chat in the tunnel, waiting for the beginning of the end, it just did me in and then Pipa goes and drops a bomb the size of his ass, saying he wants to leave?? My life officially became a Cymbalta commercial. No joke. My iTunes library certainly wasn’t helping the matter either, putting together the saddest shuffles known to man. Talk about Ode to Depression. I know at this point, there’s nothing we can do but try and figure out how to deal….it’s not going to be easy, but hopefully launching into NT mode will help. And cake. And lots of ice cream. And lots of sobbing into your ice cream. WAHHHH!
